This paper focuses on a Human Factors evaluation campaign that had associated Ergonomics and Human Reliability Analysis (HRA) for the evaluation of a future control room. This campaign was conducted within the framework of a broad design project and was performed in a full scale simulator with 3 futures operating teams. The aims and methods of both, ergonomics and HRA, are compared and their particularities and complementariness in the different stages of a HF evaluation campaign (preparation, data collection, analysis, conclusions and recommendations) are discussed. The results highlight their contribution to safety and risk analysis.
